Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome to Year 4! We are going to have a really busy year this year, but there is also lots to look forward to.
Here are some important reminders that you need to be aware of:
PE Kit is needed on Tuesdays and Fridays
Reading books need to be brought in every Thursday
Homework progress checks are every other Thursday. Specific dates will be on homework grid.
The children will receive their homework grids on the first week of term week. They must have collected 15 points by the end of term in order to come to the Homework party.
They will also have spelling handed out in sets lasting 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, there will be a spelling test which will test children's knowledge of all spelling rules learnt.
Please bring book bags and home school contact books in everyday as letters and comments often get sent out and these can be placed safely in their book bags.
Our Trip to the Life Centre
As we look at electricity in Science, we visited the Life Centre to attend a Circuits and conductors workshop. We made lots of circuits and tested different materials to see if they were a conductor of insulator. We also found out if humans were a conductor by using ourselves in an experiment.
The other exhibitions were great fun too! We even faced our fears and all went on the 4D motion ride.
Our Trip to the Discovery Museum
Year 4 went to the Discovery Museum to see how Newcastle had changed over time. The fun exhibitions showed us the old Tyne Bridge and how the Quayside used to be busy with boats all the time. This is very different from how we know it today! There are only a couple of boats in the river at any given time and several bridges across it all the time.
We also got to explore and play in the other exhibitions.
European Languages Day
Yassou! Year 4 celebrated European Languages Day by looking at the Greek language. We practiced typical greetings and then made a Greek Noah's Ark.
We made the Greek flag of course and then tried some Greek food. We enjoyed olives, feta cheese, pitta bread (warmed up courtesy of Ms. Brand) and then dipped this all into hummus. It was super tasty!
